Can you help me how to deal with Insomnia?

There are many factors that can affect your sleep. Knowing what these factors are can help you understand why you may not be sleeping properly and you can then adjust your lifestyle to get the sleep you need. Read about what can affect your sleep in the Sleep Stealers article.

If you have trouble falling asleep, try this method that I use if insomnia persists. While lying in bed with your eyes closed, tell yourself this: “If I can’t fall asleep in 2 minutes I will get up and start cleaning my room/washing dishes/working”. Honestly promise yourself that you will get up out of bed and begin doing a boring or unpleasant task. Picture yourself getting up and starting on that task. Remarkably, it works so well – you will feel lazy and tired, and sleep will come naturally. It works for me every time!
